Review summary

We celebrated a wedding. Everything was very organized. The staff was excellent. I enjoy cruising on Carnival. Conquest Class isnt my favorite, I like the bells and whistles of Dream Class and Vista Class ship. Fun is what you make it. Being with family and friends and On vacation is always Fun to me.

All the staff was very nice. They were quick to met my needs and take care of my request.

Ship Quality

4 out of 5
Although my cabin steward was very friendly. The cleanliness of the cabin was not always good. The bathroom was dusty. The shelves were not wiped down.

Cabin / Stateroom

4 out of 5
Accessible cabin. All the way foward. The cabin located all the way foward next to the door that took you outside to the front of the ship. Expect high foot traffic. It didnt bother me at all. But light sleeper or afternoon nap takers be aware. Cabin is all the way foward so alot of movement can be felt. No couch so plenty of turnaround room for a scooter.

Ship tip

Conquest class Smaller ship, not all the bells and whistles of Dream class or Vista Class

We had no issues, we were meeting a private car to donate items to girls home. Customs and Carnival made the process very easy. Everyone was very friendly.
